Places– of Charm

In most parts of the country, we are coming up on summer’s last hurrah, Labor Day.  Decorating with blue and yellow somehow allows us to extend the spirit of summer.  While it’s true that blue is calming and yellow is energizing and mixing them creates a sunny day, it can become overwhelming.  I like the idea of accessorizing– table centerpieces, candles, and pillows.

    Kathleen, recently we painted our walls yellow walls, but we used a very pale tone. It was enough to create that safe, secure feeling.

    Yellow is a happy color that makes me want to get up in the morning. Glad you mentioned the light-light tone. My wife Heidi and I have tired of our latte walls– they can look a bit dreary.

    My neighbor Tom who is selling his house had the interior painted a linen yellow. I guess you would say cream. It is beautiful.

    Kathleen, I do like the blue/yellow impact. I hang my collection of blue plates in my dining room. They’re an instant focal point. Mary Alice, I agree– Tom’s walls look so much better!

    For dinner decor, yellow stimulates conversation and blue is a tension tamer. I like blue patterned dishes– the onion pattern is a favorite. There’s nothing like a low level sunflower arrangement.

    The blue onion, yes, I like that pattern also. Have you seen the charming rooster pattern– very Country French with colors of blue, yellow, and barn red.

    Recently I bought some shimmering blue glassware at Pier1, just $7 each. They would look terrific with the Rooster plates.
